This book fills the gap by giving an overview of the current status of European gamma knife radiosurgery. Leading european experts report on their specialities in this field which is a state-of-the-art summary of the possibilities and results of their current work. The book encompasses all important as well as the more rare indications. All relevant technical and clinical quality standards are addressed. Tailored planning strategies are described for different indications. All professionals who care for patients with neurosurgical disease, such as neurosurgeons, radiosurgeons, radiologists, radiation oncologists and neurologists will find the book highly useful for the management of patients with benign and malignant brain lesions in a multidisciplinary setting.
